The Amtrack was a relaxing commute for an overnight trip to Vancouver to watch the Oilers and Canucks game. The train was an easy walk to our hotel and near Chinatown, lots of good food and shops.

Travelling from Kamloops, our bus arrived at this station. The building itself is an impressive structure which seems to have a lot of history. There are three usual shops and waiting areas inside. The area appears to be undergoing some construction at the moment.

We opted for Business Class seats on our journey from Seattle to Vancouver BC. We got a little caught out when we dropped our bags off in that we didn't notice the 50 pound limit. We were on a long holiday so we were just a little over that weight which necessitated a bit of a scramble. Of course the weight limit was clear to see on our e-tickets!! The seats were very comfortable and the free wifi worked well. We tried the chowder in the dining car and I also had a burger. The food was adequate but nothing special. The bathroom stayed fairly clean for the entire journey. And of course, the scenery is spectacular. The key bonus in travelling Business Class was bing the first to get off the train and thus avoid a long line through Canadian customs and immigration. We were through the station with bags in hand with in 5 minutes and were fortunately almost first in line for the taxi stand. Unfortunately that is where our luck ended as there were no taxis and we had about a 20 minute wait. All in all for a great city centre to city centre experience I would strongly recommend this train.

This building is a short walk from the skytrain which we took from our cruise as we were taking Amtrak back to Seattle. There is a big park in the front and the streets are quiet. Lots of geese in the park. There is a good sushi place that has sincere owners and is inexpensive. We had vegan sushi which was pretty good. There are nice wooden benches in this station, and the train is a breeze, you sit there until the time time, business class gets on first, you provide your ticket QRS code on your phone or paper print out, they assign you, and then you greet your customs guy and then you walk to the train. They gave us $9 in food coupons which was really nice. Food was ok. Glad we brought the sushi. Cars were in halfway decent shape, rather run down, however clean, not Tokyo standards clean though. There was a 110V outlet at the floor by the window for plugging in to charge, no USB ports. If you bring the correct sized luggage it fits over your head, otherwise there is a storage space near the door. Some people hung out in the dining car the whole time because you get a big bench seat and some atmosphere, reading or playing cards. View was nice and interesting and at a slower pace without any hassle of driving or flying. Border crossing was interesting, they used a bomb sniffer pointing it each person, checked your passport and in 10 minutes we were off again. They stopped at various towns for a smoke break, and it was nice to get outside for fresh air. Very personable trip and down to earth. If you take the early train you see a lot more than the evening one.
